Young Brazilian prodigy Vitor Roque has arguably become a primary objective for FC Barcelona when it comes to their current transfer plans. Moreover, given reports regarding the club’s recent approaches to Athletico Paranaense and other entities involved with Roque, this target becomes more and more concrete.

Having already scored 6 goals in 6 games in the South American Under-20 championship, the youngster is currently in red-hot form. As per the reports from SPORT, Barcelona have already approached the likes of Luiz Felipe Scolari, current technical director of Athletico Paranaense, and Alexandre Mattos, CEO of the club, showcasing potent intent regarding Roque’s acquisition.

The club is currently looked over by president Mario Celso Petraglia, a man renowned for being quite a hard negotiator when it comes to inquiries and attempts over his assets. To ensure this deal gets through successfully across the board, Barcelona will need to move with caution and care.

Despite the reported support and encouragement to join Barca coming from Roque’s closest accomplices, family, and even himself being eager to join the Blaugrana outfit, there remain other hurdles yet to be overcome.

Most importantly, the Financial Fair Play rulings set by La Liga president Javier Tebas continue to be a massive thorn in Barcelona’s side. They need to both come up with a financial offer that is eligible given their current financial restrictions as well as one that Roque’s current club would be willing to accept.

Labeled a “predator” akin to how a young Luis Suarez used to play and be portrayed as, the player indefinitely oozes both quality and professionalism regarding his craft. Reportedly excited to get a chance to play with the great Robert Lewandowski, the player would find vital opportunities to grow and develop his abilities to an unprecedented level under the potential tutelage of the Polish striker.
